10.1 Constraints Editor/Floorplan Editor - Constraints are still saved if closing one plug-in without saving constraints

Description

If both Constraints Editor and Floorplan Editor are up at the same time, and I close Flooplan Editor and decide not to save any changes, these discarded changes still exist in the constraints scratchpad used by Constraints Editor, so by default they get saved when I exit Constraints Editor. 

 

When is this going to be fixed?

Solution

The problem stems from the fact that Constraints Editor and Floorplan Editor share a single constraints scratchpad, and this problem will be fixed in a future release of the software version. That version shall include a message box to warn you that discarded edits may be saved, giving you the opportunity to abort closing Floorplan Editor or Constraints Editor.
